The Sunderland player had not netted since grabbing a goal for his club against Chelsea in December, but he made a timely return to scoring form for his country in Jacksonville.

Altidore tapped in right-back Fabian Johnson's cross for the US team's opener in the 31st minute, before showing his confidence was up by slaloming into a shooting position and rattling in a fierce shot for his second goal after 68 minutes.

Victor Moses replied with an 86th-minute penalty for Nigeria, beating Tim Howard from the spot to deny the goalkeeper a clean sheet on his 100th appearance for the United States.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...
